Undoubtedly, the 15th edition of FITECMA, to be held from July 14 to 17, 2021, at the Costa Salguero Center, in the City of Buenos Aires, will present a completely renewed profile. The inclusion of new thematic areas and the development of special activities will make it possible to work on the concept of including the entire industrial forestry chain. Allocating a specific area to Bioenergy (biomass, technology and materials for the generation of thermal energy) is encircled in that direction.
The next edition of FITECMA ‘’ modified its structure to facilitate the visit by visitors, dividing the fair into thematic areas: Machines; Tools; Industry 4.0; Supplies; Construction with Wood; and Bioenergy, explains Nicolás De Gennaro, Executive Director of the fair.
According to Fernando Göttert, Secretary of ASORA and member of the Organizing Committee, “the delimitation of thematic areas will also allow a better layout of the specific actions that will take place during the fair.”
Along these lines, highly qualified partners were selected in each of the activities to be carried out.
In bioenergy, PROBIOMASA has already confirmed its participation – Project for the promotion of energy (FAO – Secretariat of Energy for Productive Development – Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries), with whose authorities are planning specific communication actions that allow the promotion of biomass for the generation of clean energy. In addition, contact is being made with national companies and representatives of the main international companies that provide technology and local producers of wood pellets. At the same time, negotiations are being carried out with the directors of Avebiom – Spanish Association for the Energy Valorization of Biomass (organizers of Expobiomasa, Valladolid), with whom it was agreed to advance in a joint dissemination work to ensure that Spanish companies present themselves at FITECMA . Also with companies that participated from February 19 to 22 in Progetto Fuoco, the most important fair of the field held in Verona, Italy.
